You'll Be the Queen of the Festival Scene
Are you still hurting from the complete disaster that was the Fyre Festival? Do you spend your free time scrolling enviously through festival fashion pictures on Instagram? Are you a dedicated Burner, obsessed with all things Coachella, or lover of Bonnaroo?
No matter what kind of music you're into, you know that planning your outfits for your next festival is way more than half the fun.
Unless you've been living under a rock, then you've already realized that the fanny pack has seriously taken over the festival fashion scene. Of course, it's easy to see why.
Not only are these packs a fun way to make an epic fashion statement -- they can also hold all of your festival essentials. Stuff yours full of energy bars, your cellphone, water, glow sticks, your lighter, cash, and your ID! Plus, a fanny pack will leave your hands free, so you can dance the night away to your heart's content.
They're Gender Neutral
While we think anyone should be allowed to carry a purse, unfortunately, the rest of the world hasn't quite caught up with us.
The fanny pack is an all-inclusive purse that's right for everyone. Plus, gender-bending clothing is seriously in style. Not only will you be able to hold everything you need in one place, you'll also be able to let people know you're up on all the latest trends.
There's a Style for Everyone
In addition to being crazy-convenient and appropriate for all genders, these days, there are fanny packs for every style and personality.
Are you a raver? If so, then why not pick up a glitter or iridescent fanny pack?
Obsessed with all things space? Try this galaxy print option on for size.
Looking to keep your pack a bit more on the dainty side? You can't go wrong with one of these floral packs. (By the way, it's totally time to re-write the rules. Wear floral prints at any time of the year, not just during the spring.)
To highlight your pack, especially if you're going for a printed option, we recommend that you keep the rest of your outfit neutral. Wearing solid colors, like black or brown, help to draw people's eyes right to your pack!
They'll Lighten the Mood
Let's face it -- for many, fashion is just a way to have fun. If you're not afraid to laugh at yourself, or take a bit of a risk, then you have exactly the right personality to wear a fun pack.
Casual day at the office? Where your pack to keep your coworkers smiling. Want to keep a few bills stashed away for your friend's bachelor party? Your pack will be more than happy to hold all those singles.
Want to tone down the stuffy mood at a fancy banquet? Shake things up and lighten the mood with a pack!
They Can Go Anywhere
While lots of people associate the fanny pack with rave culture or high-concept fashion, the reality is that these packs are right for almost any lifestyle.
Heading to the beach with your girlfriends for a weekend? Stash a flask of your favorite beverage and some sunscreen in your pack, and you're good to go.
Hitting the gym before work? Toss in some energy gel to help you power through your workout, and keep your phone in your bag so you can listen to music hands-free. Or, simply toss a two-pound weight in your pack for an instant workout that also helps you to make a fashion statement!
Taking your beloved pooch for a walk? Hide a few treats (and those unsightly poop bags) in your pack. Your dog -- and your neighbors -- will thank you for it!
With the holidays right around the corner, we're all in the mood to take one extra slice of cake or skip yoga class in favor of brunch with the girls.
The good news about a fanny pack?
It can adjust right along with your waistline and the position you want to place it in. No matter your size or your current wait, there's a pack that's right for you. The majority of our packs are designed to fit anywhere from a fifteen-inch to a forty-eight-inch waist.
But it's not just your weight that our packs will adjust to. They're also incredibly durable. Especially if you have plans to take your pack hiking, or if you're just notoriously rough on your clothing, then one of our packs is right for you.
The packs are even water resistant, which means that even if you get stuck in an unexpected downpour while wearing your pack, your things will stay warm and dry.
Plus, because the pockets inside of the packs have been reinforced, you can feel free to cram as much stuff as you need inside of them!
